I call my 7mm-08 varmint rifle the "Saint" because it's easier to say than "seven millimeter ought eight"

Re: Conversation Starter

I love the look on peoples faces when I hand them one of my loaded 270AM rounds. What cracks me up is when they ask me if it is as powerful as a 270wby, most people just cant grasp a 270 cal rifle being that powerful

My custom little .221FB. "SPARKY"

Re: Conversation Starter

I guess since i started this i should through out my names and nicknames.

savage 300 is the "papa bear"
Savage 223 is "baby bear"
But they get refereard to more as "my ugly sticks"
The rest of them are calibers since they arnt my work horses and arnt used as much.

I was really kinda curious about the names?

Here is another one this should be a pole though?
How many of us sweet talk are rifles.

Ill go first, my girl will probly tell you that i sweet talk my rifles and my trunk more then her...hmm maybe thats why she always mad at me[img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
